Environment Index is the new, shortened title for Environmental Issues & Policy Index.
This database has different emphases from Environmental Sciences & Pollution Management and LexisNexis Environmental. They concentrate on science and technology, and legal and news resources, respectively.
It has had quite a history of title changes: the following is taken from Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory, or Ulrichsweb, which we have listed among our “Articles and Databases” resources:
“Title History: Former titles (until 2006): Environmental Issues & Policy Index (United States); (until Dec. 2002): Environmental Policy Index (United States); (until 2002): Environmental Knowledge Base (Online Edition) (United States); (until 2000): Environmental Periodicals Bibliography (Print Edition) (United States) (0145-3815); (until 1973): Environmental Periodicals (United States) (0046-2306)”
From the webpage on Environmental Index at EBSCO Publishing:
“Formerly known as Environmental Knowledgebase OnLine (created by the International Academy at Santa Barbara), Environment Index offers deep coverage in applicable areas of agriculture, ecosystem ecology, energy, renewable energy sources, natural resources, marine & freshwater science, geography, pollution & waste management, environmental technology, environmental law, public policy, social impacts, urban planning, and more. Environment Index contains more than 1,670,000 records from more than 1,600 domestic and international titles going back to the 1950s (including 1,075 active core titles) as well as more than 100 monographs. Environment Index also features an in-depth thesaurus, and author profiles will be provided for 5,000 authors in the discipline. Please note that this product recently changed names from Environmental Issues and Policy Index.”
